    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course as an introductory to chemistry. For my class, chemistry is a required class, though it helps to have the class as a high school to get a sense of what chemistry is all about.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how to do stoichiometry, which basically are most of the math equations used in chemistry. It is a somewhat difficult, though reading over your notebook helps tons. In addition, we learned about the advances in chemistry made by contributors‚Äč like JJ Thompson and Niel Bohr.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take advantage of your notebook! It not only counts for a major portion of your grades, but it contains everything you went through the class, such as the periodic table, balancing atoms, chemists, and much more.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    When students walk into Ms. Rodger's Chemsity class, they have yet to realize the difficulty of content that they will need to understand in order to successfully survive the class, unlike most of their other classes. What made chemistry a struggle for students is the demanding pace that the class needed to go through, hence why students could never catch up. Another thing about chemistry class is the teacher, Ms. Rodgers herself. She is a lovely person, but as a teacher she wants to challenge students to think fo themselves and use their resources to find the answer. She will never give in to explain because she knows that students will take advantage and not learn anything from her explanation. Many students found her insane, but what she did was for good intentions. Chemistry was tough, although it is what I got from the class that made it a favorite class of mine. The fact that Ms. Rodgers wanted her students to be independent and think for ourselves help me overcame my reliance on a teacher, and if I ever needed help, I will go out of my way to go to her during her free time to help clarify a concept I was not able to understand. In addition, as a student who is interested in medicine, this class went over a basic overview of what I'll need to go through, and I got a chance to learn how to appreciate chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, we learned everything from learning the periodic table in depth, the bonds that exist in elements, using stoichiometry to balance charges, and the history of chemistry. Even though the class was rigorous, we held numerous of labs that made the class worthwhile. A few labs we investigated were to see how chemical reacted to other chemicals, and we also tested to see what chemicals changed the color of fire. Furthermore, we saw how the pressure changed with a balloon when chemical mix.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In the beginning of the year, Ms. Rodgers asks that the students keep a notebook for the class. This unwritten notebook will become a bible to you by the end of the year. This notebook is not the standard Cornell notes and you take note. It is different in the sense that Ms. Rodgers the notes that are in the notebook will actually get students to learn what the concept is about. Everything that a student learns in chemistry class will be noted in a notebook with all the activities from labs, charts, diagrams, and visuals. Also, the notebook is weighted 40% of the grade in the class, so it best that you are consistently writing down what is asked and make sure to have it with you during class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    We learned stoichiometry! Using units were heavily emphasized and there are many stoichiometry equations to learn, which confused many students. The course included group work, so you can always ask your peers questions in case you needed more clarifaction.

    Course highlights:

    We studied chemical reactions! It was very exciting to watch changes of sulfate burning, experimenting with different elements, and think like chemists.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take some time to review your notes! It only helps you, especailly once you get into stochimetery.
